LG was born to do one thing, disrupt, We've always been a bit weird, seen things a bit different and not really fit in with the mainstream, light bulb moment was when we thought, there might be more of us out there .... and here you are you glorious thing you.
We think that climbing is all out freedom and escaping from the normal. We try to capture this rebellious nature by not creating what every other company has, but trying to produce unique products that climbers didn't know they needed.
To be as disruptive as possible!
Not Just Neutral
We wanted to go one step further than just simply offsetting the carbon we create. We calculate the amount of carbon we have created each month, we then double it, making us fully carbon negative.
This mean every bag of climbing chalk or any other item you buy from us has been offset twice. Our climbing chalk is also manufactured, and NOT mined, helping make our planet greener!
We harness the power of the natural world!
All of our products are natural and free from any fake stuff or harsh chemicals, where possible they're from organic and plant-derived sources that are responsibly and fairly sourced. When developing a product we spend a lot of time finding just the right stuff from just the right place. For us, choosing the right ingredients takes time. We only pick ingredients that do a job like no other and that we have individually assessed to be safe. If we can’t source the quantities we need in a sustainable, ethically sourced way (or if the natural sources contain too many impurities, along with the good stuff) we don't use it and choose another natural ingredient in its place, nothing is worth killing our planet for.
To look after our planet and our future it is vital that we reduce the amount of rubbish that is produced, every small contribution adds up and our goal from the start is to protect what we love. We try to make our packaging robust, durable and most importantly, as easily recyclable as possible! You’ll find plastic in some of our packaging-but it Is only used when absolutely nothing else outweighs its benefits, and the type used is as easily recycled as possible.
We're working on being able to sell refills too, this will help us cut our waste down substantially and in turn make our products a little cheaper
Kraft Bags - our bags contain NO plastic, Our chalk packs are BIO-degradable and certified as compostable meaning they take weeks to breakdown instead of 100+years like normal plastics.
They're made from - kraft paper - cellulose film - starch film
Aluminium Tins - Aluminium is highly recyclable, it is shredded down to make the next wave of products. Aluminium is the most cost-effective material to recycle.
Plastic Bottles - These are made from PP and easily recycled, these are used for our chalk paste where no other material suits the paste.
Postage Boxes - These are all made from card stock and can easily be recycled along with our printed tape and paper void filler everything has been made to recycle.
